For Conservatives, Boycotts Are Noble Efforts When They Support Them, Otherwise It's 'Economic Terrorism'

It was only two years ago that conservative activists were irate that gay rights supporters dared to boycott Chick-fil-A because of donations to anti-gay groups. Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel, for example, said he was outraged by liberals “intimidating” the restaurant chain, and described a similar pressure campaign against the Charity Give Back Group, which was also making contributions to anti-gay political organizations, as “economic terrorism” and proof that gay rights advocates “want to see us behind bars.” Today, the same Matt Barber called for a...

Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver lamented this week that the United States’ support for LGBT equality means that America is no longer “the shining city on the hill, the example for other nations to follow” and has instead become “the example of what not to follow.” Staver and Matt Barber discussed their work pushing anti-gay policies throughout the world on arecent episode of Faith & Freedom Radio, including defending Scott Lively in a lawsuit involving his anti-gay work in Uganda, and efforts to stop sex education and marriage equality in Croatia, which...

Liberty Counsel chairman Mat Staver recently took a cruise with his wife during which they visited the ancient city of Pompeii, which was destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 C.E. and it made him realize that America is likewise on the verge of total destruction if it does not stop legal abortion and gay marriage. "I think we're living in the shade of Vesuvius," Staver said on a recent episode of Liberty Counsel's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, warning that Americans are going about their daily lives, removing God from our society, and engaging in...

Wayne Allyn Root teases that "I’m not promising it yet or officially declaring, but I’m thinking really seriously about running against Harry Reid for the United States senate in 2016." The organization Christians in Defense of Israel has now become a part of Liberty Counsel. Matt Barber says President Obama's ENDA executive order proves that he is an "imperialist president" who is "targeting and discriminating specifically against Christian companies." Michael Brown likewise voices his displeasure: "[Y]ou took it upon yourself... MORE >

Is Matt Barber secretly a gay rights advocate who has gone under deep cover to make the Religious Right look absolutely ridiculous? It seems that might be the case, judging by his latest column, titled “The Coming Christian Revolt.” Featuring a picture of African American demonstrators being shot with water hoses behind a superimposed rainbow image, Barber writes that the anti-gay Right is the direct descendant of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement, and must similarly engage in “widespread civil disobedience” in the face of water hoses. From behind... MORE >
Staver: Democrats' Response To Hobby Lobby Ruling A Result Of God Giving 'Them Over To A Reprobate Mind'

In response to the Supreme Court's decision in the Hobby Lobby case, Democrats in Congress put forth legislation that would require most employers to provide contraception regardless of religious objections, which Mat Staver said is the result of liberals rejecting God and having been given over to a "reprobate mind." Claiming that liberals are throwing "an absolutely hissy conniption fit" about the Hobby Lobby ruling because they have now lost a small amount of control over Christians, Staver's ho-host Matt Barber was mystified as to why Democrats are now "...

Matt Barber declares that "all pretense has been dropped" as the "Left moves to outlaw Christianity." Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad has signed a proclamation calling for prayer and repentance that was put together by Bob Vander Plaats. Anti-choice activists want a Catholic hospital to fire three doctors because those doctors provide abortions, even though they are not doing so at the Catholic hospital. Just remember that the next time the Religious Right starts screaming about "persecution." Liberty Counsel plans to distribute 150,000 DVDs encouraging... MORE >

Todd Starnes says that "under this administration, the government believes they are church and President Obama is the deity." Bryan Fischer says that Ann Coulter is "the Manchurian Columnist." Laurie Higgins argues that if opposition to homosexuality is akin to racism "then cultural disapproval of polyamory, zoophilia, and scores of other paraphilias is wrong and akin to racism." The Lord says, "I am already invading Hollywood far beyond what you can imagine." Matt Barber asserts that the fact that support for ENDA is... MORE >
